Simtra Triple IPA delivers a punch in the face with its very danky hop aroma derived from Simcoe and Citra hops. You wanted more hops you got them.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Rerate: Dark copper color with small white head and little lacing- thick and oily. Aroma is resinous, some tropical fruits, pinches the nose like a bit of gasoline. Flavor is very bitter, lots of earthy vegetable, and syrupy candy malt finish. Big hop bomb. Full body, big alcohol presence- pretty intense. Very different from my first experience 6 months ago, and still good, but not what I remember and not what I expected.

11/16/2012: (10)(3)(8)(4)( Amber color with very small diminishing white head. Oily on the glass with no lacing. Aroma is Fantastic- huge huge fruity & floral hops! Amazing fruity hop flavor with an intense grapefruity bitter finish. Best $9 bomber I’ve probably ever had- puts Hoppin Frog’s $14 Hop Dam to shame...

Pours a dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a lasting film/ring. Sporadic streaks of lace left behind. Dank earthy hop aroma with fresh cut grass, earthy pine and resinous oils countered by subtle citrus/tropical fruit and a pale malt backbone. Pine needle, spruce tip, floral buds and grass countered by strong grapefruit, pineapple, blood orange, melon and lemon peel sweetness. Pale malts with faint bread, biscuit and cracker. Nice balance with juicier fruit notes countering the earthy resins. Full body with a blast of dry, dank earthy bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt character into a bone dry finish. Dry and sticky with resinous oils and pine needle. Slightly spicy with grass, spruce tips and dank leaf. Very bitter but the bitterness is countered by prominent fruit sweetness. Hints of melon and grapefruit with pineapple, lemon pith and blood orange. Pale malt backbone with subtle caramel and toffee sweetness along with bread, biscuit and grainy graham cracker. Some boozy sweetness and a bit of heat in the finish but the high ABV is pretty well masked. Alcohol presence takes away slightly from the hop flavors but it’s still deceptively drinkable at 11.5%.

22FL OZ ($8.99) this was a truly epic IPA, I’ve been searching for something like this and here it is. over the top in IBUs and ABV it is a beast. if you’re loving your IPAs and have maxed out and need to raise the bar here it is. if you’re a newbie to beer drinking or if you enjoy something like shock top this will absolutely destroy you.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle. Golden and moderately frothy. This has a big, west-coast, wet-hop aroma and character, like sucky on hop mush. The viscosity is evident, as is the gravity. (#6056, 11/1/2015)

22 oz. bottle purchased at One Stop Market, again this brewery with no date coding. The Aroma is sticky weed, dankness, and light cat piss.

The base has a huge grain bill. Caramel, sweet bread and from all that malt come a boozy alcohol presence. The body is medium plus, with good carbonation level. The flavor has a trace of cat piss with tropical fruit and grass. The malt and booze really kill the hops. Actually really too sweet to enjoy a lot. Texture is sticky sweet… not my thing here.

Was happy for Orion to get this for me and share it with him. I like these hops and had high expectations, which weren’t met, and i think i had a similar let down with a couple other knee deeps. so many fine beers being made. Musky aroma with lemon and caramel, good mouth feel, the carbonation and a little oily. mild finish. flavor of toast, caramel, alcohol.

Another great on from Knee Deep. They knocked it out of the park again. One of those beers where you just open your wallet. Definitely a favorite brewery of ours. Get to the taproom!
